vacation pics

i finally have 3 minutes to myself (hold the phone) so here you go- vaca pics.
we spent a week up at York Beach- right on Long Sands-  & it was amazing.
exhausting, but amazing.

it was us, the dogs, friends of ours & their dog. our dogs got themselves sent home after the 1st day (for barking at anyone & everyone who decided to walk by & breath) but be pleaded with the guy who owned the place to let us keep our friend's puppy. 

he grudgingly consented & we spent the next 5 days rescuing EVERYTHING from his puppy jaws & trying to tire him out so he wouldn't bark at 6 am every morning. the girls loved him...until he stole their snacks & then they delighted in telling him no.

our dogs were shipped off to my in law's for the week & they had a fab time with my in law's dog. so everyone won.

prepare yourselves for the overload:








































































York's Wild Kingdom, the boardwalk, Goldenrod, the beach, the playground, Brown's Ice Cream, lobster rolls, Target (duh), the mall (you guys- it was like 95 one day), friends, dogs, portable dvd players (yesss), bunk beds, Harry Potter, sunscreen, foooood, booze, lots of sand & etc etc etc

the plan is to make this an annual thing. i want the girls to look forward to a week or 2 at the beach every summer, something we didn't have growing up.

now to get our hands on a rental every year- wish us luck.
Pin It!

Vaca by us at the Jersey shore! (not the dirty one... the clean one) there are 034-8430-483243-2483-02843- rentals. yep a new big number with dashes in it... anyway anytime I am anywhere else I want to go to that target. I wanted to go while we were on our family vacation but it was too far. jealous :)

Looks like a great time. DH and I spent a weekend in Ogunquit for our anniversary, and of course we made a stop at Goldenrod. Love that taffy! Also, I am insanely jealous that Brynn lets you put her hair in ponytails. DD has the exact same curls and won't let me put anything in it. I keep telling myself that someday it will grow down and not out.

If you ever want to House Swap, we live in Orlando, about 30 minutes from the beach, and 20 minutes from Disney : )
